Exclamation Intake Air Duct Recall (2003-2007)

Nissan is voluntarily recalling 362,891 first-gen MOs to repair/replace the engine air intake duct.

According to the NHTSA release, "The intake ducts, which are connected to the intermediate resonator in the air intake system of the engine, may separate from the resonator with engine movement. This separation occurs due to the premature aging of the material used in the intake air ducts which causes excessive shrinking."

Nissan plans to notify the dealers by July 2, 2009, and begin owner notification on July 6, 2009.

Owners who had repair work done prior to the recall will be reimbursed.

The recall is 09V169000.

Wow I didn't think it was that big of an issue. Now... if they would only recall the rocking seat then I think we would have a solid car! (Get is solid..... )

Hi guys,

Could that be the cause for my problem?...

I posted it on a separate thread - basically when it's warmer and I drive too fast or too slow in traffic my car stops accelerating. It comes back to normal if I let it cool down for 15 - 30 minutes.

Someone suggested it might be the high fluid temperature protection mode. The dealer says I need a new transmission (!...)

I remember reading other posts on the forum where people had similar symptoms (and dealer diagnostic) but it was simply something to do with this air intake thing.

Can you guys help me out with more details about this?

Thank you.

That is easy to find out. Next time your engine is warm and the issue resurfaces, pop the hood open and take a look at the rubber boot that goes between the air cleaner assembly and the intake manifold. Try to move it to see if it slides on the metal parts of either on the air cleaner side or the intake manifold, or if there is a gap at all. If so, then that is your problem.

Thank you.

Is there by any chance a picture anywhere so I can see exactly what to check?

Thank you.

G-

I am with you on this one.

I did not realize this was such a big problem. This was a voluntary recall initiated by Nissan. The NHTSA was only notified after Nissan elected to initiate the recall.

It's a shame Nissan is not as accommodating with the driver seat issue.

A good start, but like many others I'd love to see Nissan get cracking on the seat issue. $1000 repairs every few years for something that should never break is absurd.

well well well

I remember I was poo-pooed when I said this was an issue on my 04.
I have seen at least 8 folks here who experianced this issue besides me. I ended up driving a short screw through the hose and the plastic to keep it from coming off. That was the only fix that worked. No amount of cleaning or re-tightening would fix it. Just cleaning and re-tightening would last 1 hour or several weeks. When it got to be from work till most of the way home, out came the screw -- never had another problem.

Symptoms:

At speed throttle sluggish.
Bucking from stop.
Engine dies at stop, I had to feather the throttle to keep it going till I got to a place to slide her back on again.

The bucking was positively violent from a stop.

For those of you who have elected to not have the dealer implement this recall because you either do not trust your dealer or would prefer to do the job yourself, Courtesy Nissan offers the kit for $18.81.

The kit part number is 16578-CA09A and is made up of one (1) air duct and two (2) wire clamps. The service bulletin (NTB09-038) claims the repair takes 0.2 hours.

I had this done at the dealer while having the oil changed a while back. When my wife left the dealer after the following oil change, the Murano did not want to go down the street at all. It was jerky, and didn't know what to do. So she went back, and it was the plenum following the air filter. the bracket was not properly clamped (I'm guessing it became seperated after they checked the air filter.) So if this happens to you, its probably the reason. The motor is sucking in air that the air intake sensor doesn't know about or something like that.

Mine just had this issue yesterday, on the freeway it stuttered from 3-5K RPM. Once stopped, car would only crawl when stepping on the gas. I turned off the car turned it back on and the car would rev normally but once put into drive it would go back to limp mode and start bucking violently. SES light came on and is now waiting to go to the dealership for the recall.
